Brooklyn Snow, 2/21/2015
I'm taking another quick break from my Caribbean trip reporting because I have some nice pictures from a walk in the Brooklyn Bridge Park to share today.
I haven't been getting out much since I got back from the Caribbean. The weekend after we returned, I came down with a cold that just dragged on and on and on when I got back from the Caribbean, and with our weather having been so harsh I just haven't wanted to be outside any more than I absolutely had to while that was going on. That finally seems to be over except for a lingering stupid little cough, and with our temperatures actually busting all the way up into the 20's today (ooh, and looking at NOAA I see we're all the way up at 31 right now, downright balmy) I was ready to get out of the house for a while.
Kayaking isn't an option right now because the Paerdegat is completely frozen; I was actually toying with the idea of checking out the pool at the new Coney Island YMCA, since the Caribbean put me deep into a swimming mood, but we've had ice in the area waterways for a while and when my friend John (Control Geek) posted a spectacular shot of an icy East River with Manhattan in the background on Facebook this morning, I instantly decided that a walk through the Brooklyn Bridge Park sounded like a great idea, so that's what I did. No towers of Manhattan shining across the river today, but I had a very good time taking pictures in the snow. I've posted more over on Flickr, click here to view.
